The Crash Reel

The Crash Reel

Thanks to Hopscotch, we have 3 copies of “The Crash Reel” to Giveaway on DVD.

This eye-popping film, stunningly edited from 20 years of verité footage, follows champion snowboarder Kevin Pearce and exposes the fatal allure of extreme sports.
An escalating rivalry between Kevin and his nemesis Shaun White (2-time Olympic Gold Medalist) in the run-up to the 2010 Olympics culminates in Shaun winning Gold and Kevin in a life-threatening coma following a training accident. Kevin’s family help him rebuild his life as a traumatic brain injury survivor, but when he insists he wants to return to the sport that has caused him so much pain, his eloquent brother David, who has Down’s syndrome, intervenes. As an elite athlete, Kevin was a professional risk-taker but now his skills are impaired and a small blow to the head could kill him. How much risk is too much? Featuring a stellar soundtrack, with songs by Moby, Sigur Ros, The Chemical Brothers, M83 and Jose Gonzalez, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Lucy Walker uses Crash Reel to bring to audiences across an epic and true story or rivalry, the hard facts of life and ultimately, the value of family.
